For the past 4 years the Bluecoat Display Centre has partnered the Liverpool Irish Festival by selecting a contemporary Irish craft maker and inviting them to exhibit here In the Window for the month of October.
For October 2019 we would like the In the Window maker to link in to the #LIF2019theme “unique stories, creatively told” and would like to invite submissions from makers whose work naturally encompasses storytelling.
Bluecoat Display Centre are delighted to be working with the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) who are supporting our call out as well as contributing towards transport costs and who, along with the Liverpool Irish Festival Director will be involved in the final selection.

Deadline 31stMay 2019
